IMG_0270 2.jpg

Combat Casualty Care is usually only available to military and Law enforcement personnel. In this day and age of terrorism and active shooter events, we all should know some of these life saving skills. This 3.5 hour workshop will cover the big 3 causes of preventable death: massive blood loss, compromised airway, lung collapse.

Each participant will leave with useable and pertinant knowledge, an amazing experience and a tournequit. Bring a notebook, an open mind and something to eat on the breaks.


Instructor: HP Lefler is a veteran of the US Army Special Forces and a TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care) Instructor. Not only has he used these skills, he has also taught them to many hundreds of ROTC cadets. Fresh out of the military after 22 years, including multiple combat deployments, we are lucky to have him present this material for Rathborne Training. HP's depth of knowledge, personal experience and passion for teaching promises an exceptional workshop. The last one was fun, serious and full of life saving information and stories about his days as a Green Beret.
